Dental Implants

At Brookfield Oral Surgery we offer several implant-related treatments to replace one or more missing teeth. We specialize in implant treatment because we believe that dental implants are the ideal solution for tooth loss.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a titanium screw that we surgically embed deep into the jawbone. Once the implant is in place, it will slowly fuse to your jaw through the process of osseointegration. After a brief healing period, the implant screw will be able to support a restoration against the strongest forces of your bite. Dental implants can be used to support a single crown, a partial bridge, and a full-arch restoration. Dental implants can replace a single tooth or multiple teeth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth. This makes implants a more convenient, durable, secure, and aesthetically pleasing option over traditional restorations. The numerous benefits of dental implants have made them the industry standard for tooth replacement!

Dental Implant FAQ

We believe patient education is the cornerstone of good oral health. Our list of dental implant FAQ's can help you learn more about dental implants. During your initial appointment, Dr. Tyran Johnson will be happy to answer any additional questions you have regarding dental implants. This is also an excellent opportunity for you to voice any concerns. Staying informed can help you better maintain your restoration and prevent potential problems.

Implant Supported Denture

An implant-supported denture is similar to All-on-4 but usually requires more implants. We may recommend an implant-supported denture if you want a better alternative to traditional dentures. A traditional denture is a removable appliance that rests on the gums. Because it is not secured by implants, many patients experience difficulty eating, discomfort, and even embarrassing slips.

Ridge Augmentation

Many patients need a bone graft, or ridge augmentation before implantation is possible. Osseointegration, the process responsible for the many benefits of dental implants, requires an adequate amount of bone in the jaw. If osseointegration does not occur, implant failure is virtually guaranteed. Fortunately, we offer ridge augmentation to improve the quantity and quality of deteriorated bone. In many ways, ride augmentation allows patients to receive dental implants when it would otherwise be impossible.

After Implant Placement

After you have your dental implant placed, you may have questions about what comes next. Our office has compiled a handy guide on what to expect after getting your implants placed. Keep in mind that every patient’s needs are unique, so the guidelines are just general recommendations. After your treatment, we may end up giving you some different instructions based on your particular needs.

Dental Implant Candidacy

If you are in good oral and overall health, you should qualify for implant treatment. If you have experienced significant bone deterioration due to tooth loss, you may need a bone graft first. During your consultation, Dr. Tyran Johnson will be able to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. This usually involves a series of diagnostic tests that may include digital x-rays and CBCT scans.

All-on-4TM

We offer the All-on-4® Treatment Concept for patients missing all or most of their teeth. As the name suggests, this full-arch restoration only uses four implants to support the entire bridge. The posterior (back) implants are placed at an angle to utilize the strongest part of the jawbone. Other full-arch restorations usually require six to eight implants. Thanks to the revolutionary new technique, All-on-4® is much more effective and minimally invasive than other options.
